Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We perform an entanglement distillation protocol on pure and mixed states using optical metamaterials composed of gold nano-antennas and measure the density matrices by quantum-state tomography. The fidelity is improved from 0.85 to 0.97.
